This post is written in collaboration with Beat My Price from Bespoke Offers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
For months now, I’ve had my eye on the 50mm, f/1.4 Canon lens for my DSLR. As far as lenses go, it’s on the cheaper end of the scale, but at £323.99 is not cheap by any means. That’s a fair chunk of our family budget, and since I already own the 50mm, f1.8 which is a fraction of the cost, I told myself it would have to be on a great deal before I’d consider purchasing it.
Now Argos have this on sale for £289.99 (saving £35) but I wanted to see if I could get this price EVEN CHEAPER.
Beat My Price
Beat My Price is the new personal shopping experience from Bespoke Offers that allows you to find your most-wanted items at a cheaper price.
Unlike other ‘discount sites’ which present you with THEIR offers, Beat My Price allows you to say what YOU want to buy! (Uh oh, just don’t tell my Hubby )
How does Beat My Price work?
Firstly, find the EXACT item you’re looking for from a large online retailer (eg. Amazon, John Lewis, Argos etc). Copy the product URL and paste it into the Beat My Price bar. They’ll search for a better price and let you know how they’ve fared within 48 hours. Buy it! If Beat My Price is successful, you’ll have a limited time (usually 24 hours) to take up the exclusive price found for you. And, you are under NO obligation to buy anything!
You can have up to 5 live searches at any one time, meaning if you list 5 and one is resolved before the other 4, you can go ahead and request another search.
Boom! £18 saved!
Beat My Price say they will get back to you within 48 hours – giving them a chance to search their database of select partners to bring you the best deal. In fact, it took just over 4 hours for me to get a response – with a great saving of almost £18.
Not after anything in particular?
Check out Bespoke Offers for great deals and discounts from big name brands to local favourites. With everything from electrical, travel, fashion, food, home & garden, wellness, and leisure – there are many great deals to be had.
Many of these make perfect gift solutions at great prices!
If you’re looking to save money, Beat My Price is a great tool.
Saving you time and hassle from online research, Beat My Price will do all the hard work for you. Since it can also take up to 48 hours for their best prices to be found, it also stops you from making those rash, impulse purchases.
With savings typically up to 10 per cent (sometimes more) the savings may not be huge, but they are savings nonetheless. They all add up!
Hmmm… I’m suddenly getting the urge for a spa day and afternoon tea. Who’s in?!
